A day before Indian prime minister Indira Gandhi was shot dead, she told a public rally that "If I die today, every drop of my blood will invigorate the nation".
She was assassinated on October 31, 1984, near her Delhi residence by two Sikh security guards who wanted vengeance for authourising a military attack on the Golden Temple in Amritsar five months earlier.
Riots erupted following her murder, as Hindus took their revenge on Sikhs.
